My Trip to Sorrento

Where do I start? This was probably one of the best weeks of my life. The most beautiful place with wonderful company. On the 29th June my boyfriend and I jetted off to Naples, Italy. We flew with Thomson which was a pleasant experience and they made everything so easy for us; however the coach transfer from Naples airport to our hotel was quite long, the views we got to see made it so worth it.

The hotel we stayed at was Hotel Conca Park. I won't go into a whole review of the hotel here as I have written a full in depth review on Trip Advisor. Click here to read the review.

The one thing I must point out is that our hotel was in a fantastic location. Not only does it have great views of beautiful Mt Vesuvius but it is also a 5 minute walk into town. The main strip 'Corso Italia' is absolutely amazing. Beautiful shops and restaurants on every corner. And just as we thought it couldn't get any better.. we visited the strip at night time and it came alive! There were artists and performers all the way down. 

One thing you must do whilst visiting Sorrento is try the gelato! We had one every night after dinner and there are flavours you could only dream of. My favourite was After Eight and Raspberry.

My favourite thing about Sorrento is that everywhere you look you could take a beautiful, interesting photo. I was spoilt for choice for Instagram! We saw some amazing things and even found the abandoned mill we had spotted on an article about the top most beautiful abandoned places in the world.

Another thing you have to do whilst visiting Sorrento or Naples is go to Pompeii! However I won't talk about Pompeii now as I'm saving it for its own post as I have so much to say about it. It is probably the best thing I've ever done.

You've heard it all before.. and you're about to hear it again. The food here is incredible. My favourite restaurant we went to was Bufalito. I had heard about this place from watching the Sacconejolys when they went to Sorrento they loved the place. Click here for my Trip Advisor review on Bufalito. I also have reviews on some of the other places we visited that week.

One of the evenings we took a stroll down a street we hadn't been down before, and I'm so glad we did as we found the most amazing view I've ever seen. A large balcony overlooking the beach, the ocean, Vesuvius and the most beautiful sunset ever. I'll never forget that.

Overall the week went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better Italian trip. We brought home so many mementos of the week and we will never forget it. 

Here are some more photos.

If you have any questions leave them below I'll happily answer. Have you been to Sorrento before? I'd love to hear about your stay! 
Thanks so much for reading.
